Angels Trees Plus Flowers
Pageant Music could very well be called Liturgy Music, for it seeks to contribute to the rich tradition of music for sacred use in the Christian church; the linage of Pope Gregory, Josquin, the Bachs, Rheinberger, Stravinsky, Frank Martin, Duke Ellington, and Rich Mullins and many other Christian writers, composers and musicians. Pageant Music is a record label. Pageant Music is a music publishing company. Pageant Music is an aesthetic think tank. Pageant Music provides resources for churches who wish to expand the sonic palette of worship. Pageant Music is all about ancient liturgical music. Pageant Music is also all about new music. About American Gospel. About jazz and all the American urban sounds. About rich literature. About action and contemplation. And with it's own "striving and...childish stammering", Pageant Music seeks to give glory to the Triune Creator of the universe through the wonderful gift of music. We at Pageant Music hope you will enjoy this unique blend of jazz/folk/pop/groove sacred music found on angels, trees + flowers. We also hope that each new CD, wether it be original choral music, low-fi art-pop, strange, dark, fun or jazzy, will be a source of further study, edification and exploration for those lantern holders out there who listen. Oh, yes. And chief lantern holder Tom Becker loves this music. And he would know, would he not!?
